OL coach James Patton headed to Indiana

Interior offensive line coach James Patton, who joined Oklahoma in 2006, is leaving the Sooners to become an assistant at Indiana, both schools announced Monday.

Patton, who is reuniting with former OU assistant Kevin Wilson, will be the recruiting coordinator, special teams coordinator and assistant defensive line coach for the Hoosiers.

"We appreciate the contributions that James made to our program over the past seven seasons," Bob Stoops said in a release. "He was a valued member of a staff that helped us win five Big 12 championships. We wish James and his family the best in this opportunity with Kevin Wilson at Indiana."
